Vera's Three Bean Salad

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by AshK5246

Vera has attributed this recipe to "Aunt Ola". I have eaten Vera's, but haven't made it myself. Vera recommended refrigerating the salad overnight for the flavors to blend, cook time includes refrigeration prior to serving.

This was wonderful! I found the mix of flavors to be a perfect balance of sweet and sour. In fact, with the flavors the vegetables imparted to the salad, it reminded me of the best sweet & sour stir-fry I have had. This will definitely be a favorite for summer weather and barbecues! Thank you.
